"Bend it Like Beckham" is a fairly good film. Jess, a teenager from India, is an excellent soccer player and passionate about the sport. The problem: Her family is unsupportive. Her parents want her to grow up and become a “good Indian woman.” When she meets Jules (Keira Knightley from "The Pirates of the Caribbean"), she joins the local girl's soccer team.

“Bend it Like Beckham” is a great story about people pursuing their dreams, although in this case, it required that Jess rebel against her parents' wishes.

The DVD offers some extras, including the film’s director and her mother (both Indians) showing viewers how to make Aloo Gobi, an authentic Indian dish. The DVD also includes nine deleted and extended scenes, and a featurette about the making of the film. Two music videos are also included as well as several of the original trailers. If you like women's soccer, this would be a great DVD to own.
